WHO ever you are , and WHERE ever you are, say ONLY these 5 words to police if taken into custody -
Remember these five words.
This will save you in many cases.
You can be held for what seems like days and possibly be (physically and mentally) abused by the cops, but DO NOT SPEAK TO THEM other than,
even if they stop at your door and ask questions, DO NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS,
The police have stolen from my personal belongings in the past and I wonder if those items will appear in a future crime scene!

Wulfhook (Detroit)

Hey Wulfhook, tell Joe Rico there in Detroit we said hello !

I deleted a previous post as the album download link was killed, as it maybe wasn't allowed for everybody.
Sorry about that. Won't waste your time on bands that do not share,or I haven't bought the albums and can vouch they are are worth investigating.

Guess I will be posting more bands from around the world (instead of Canada?) that care less about money, than for fans checking out their demos / albums out (even for free) and truly digging the tunes.

Onto WULFHOOK who I have read elsewhere about recently, maybe in fanzines, and just noticed an email from them in April,2013.
If you like Mercyful Fate, early Helloween, Omen, Iron Maiden-type bands like Barren Cross or Intrinsic or the first 2 Fates Warning LP's more than Iron Maiden itself, and other classic 1980s heavy metal, you will love WULFHOOK.
The singer reminds me a little of, sort of like Flemming Rasmussen , meant to say Flemming Rönsdorf of  classic Danish thrash metal band ARTILLERY., I always get Metallica's R.T.L. Lp producer's name mixed up with his.

Wulfhook is a 5 piece heavy metal band from Detroit, MI formed in 2009. Playing with such national act's as Warbringer, Lazarus A.D., Diamond Plate, and Accept! Self released 3 demo's and is currently working on material for a proper full length in 2013. For fans of Judas Priest, King Diamond,Mercyful Fate, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Helloween, Pantera etc. We are a relatively new band trying to make some noise. We encourage you to review the demo, share links in blogs, or e-mail to friends you think will like it. This would help us a great deal and be really appreciated. Anything else you might need please don't hesitate to ask we'll do our best to accommodate. Look forward to hearing from you.





Or you can download our most recent Demo "Sacrifice" from:

I am Salva Rubio, vocalist from band The YTriple Corporation (Spain) and author of the book “Extreme Metal”! 

I am writing you because we follow your blog “Toronto Thrash” and we want to tell you this:

We have released our latest LP, “Medusa Megalopolis” as a free download, check it here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/5c46j15hg6nhiia/The_YTriple_Corporation_-_Medusa_Megalopolis.zip

We know it’s not common for a band to be contacting a blog for this, but we are inviting you to publish this download link so that your followers can discover our music. 

The only think we ask is: please don’t reupload it or change the link, please publish the one we’re providing. 

Should you be interested in reviewing it or interviewing us, tell us! We’ll be pleased to.

We hope you like it!

Riotor recording follow-up to raging speed death thrash debut LP

It's no secret I dig this band playing oldschool  metal. 
Not sure if they found a replacement for one of their guitarists, Gabrihell. (I am guessing he left, and couldn't split his time between RIOTOR and  DEMONA ?)

If you have the chops to play fast and evil (and if you speak Quebecois, that might help too !), you should contact them.

I should have checked their website first !! never mind what I just wrote about them looking for a guitarist ! Read on !
we finally found a guitar player: Blod formerly from ASGARD he also played with AMENOPHIS, ETERNAL and was also singing in the very first incarnation of TRAUMATISM with Kevinator and Stefanatik 20 years ago. He is a good friends of us since long time and also a true warrior of steel.
Hail to Blod! 

Hopefully a Canadian record label picks them up for their second LP, as Bestial Invasion Records' (from Scotland) website has disappeared ! No activity on their myspace either when I last looked.

Metalized Hailz Metal Maniacs!
RIOTOR will entering the studio june 29 to record their second album entitled "RUSTED THRONE".
11 new songs like Rusted Thrones, Into the Riot, Desintegrator, Learning to Hate, Narcotic Death and more. Expect a total devastation as usual from your favorite canadian thrasher for the fall of 2013.
Any label interested to release it in any format and want to listen to the 3 songs pre-prod contact us to:

Fatality Album Launch Fundraiser + Tour Dates!

One of the cooler and musically enjoyable thrash metal bands I dig - FATALITY !  they probably still have a free demo on their bandcamp site for you to check out,  so you know what their first album/CD is like - good early Slayer/Metallica-ish stuff. (What? You didn't buy it yet?!)
          Their concerts are always fun (yes, I have left the house a few times in the past) and they price their merch for pretty cheap. SUPPORT !

Friday, 28 June 2013
Fatality is preparing to launch its new album, release a music video and head out on a 2 month long US tour.

We have been recording this album for the past 5 months and are finally ready to unleash it upon the masses along with a music video for the single off the album and a huge tour in support.

We have prepared a crowd funding campaign to help raIse the money that we need in order to make this all a reality and so WE NEED YOUR HELP.

There's info below from promo e-mails I got.

I've been posting this promo info lately because I do not want headaches and wasting my time of sharing Ontario or Canadian bands' music if they are going to be lame and have it pulled down.

I have ONE upload I have permission for, and that is the unreleased Dipsomania album of punky headbanging dirty metallic rock n roll.

dipsomania probably won't ever get a proper release. A lot of things happened with them.

That upload will get done eventually. Was hoping to hear from more local / national bands by now.
